Hahaha, what a funny thing to ask at this moment in time! I actually mean the mystical event.
When I read ancient things, I can’t help but think of the bicameralism, specifically to explain how the humans seem to interact with their panpsychic world view.
So, I was wondering if folks read ancient works with a kind of detached cognitive disposition. And I’m also thinking about our WR&M game. I’m trying to hit the tone, but I have a personal issue with “creating to genre” in the media sense, though I of course appreciate a good exploration of the human condition.
I’ve been reading a lot of Cynthia Rylant recently, and I found a retelling of six Greek myths to be inspiring. I was wondering if I could call upon my knowledge of various mythologies to tell a story framed by a setting I’m personally unfamiliar with (the ancient world) and explain some modern thoughts.
This was originally a PM to @tim, but I figured this is good to open up, since I’m about to lay some myths on ya’ll, in ways you may not have experienced, and I want to know the materials I have to play with (your imagination).
